Of Turkey and Eid Adha...

Folks for wanting to have something different on that auspicious day the Eid Adha that falls last Monday December 8, 2008, the kids and grand kids decide to prepare a totally different menu for the family. So with their ingenuity they come up with that wonderful spread that you see in the images about. It was indeed a great meal and we all did enjoy it. Have a nice day.

Pak idrus,
If only I was in KL during Eidul Adha and not in Kundasang I would have dropped over for those glorious food.
The investment in a new Nikon is giving you great dividend in the form of great pictures. I like the evening sun from your condo in Malacca.

Pak Idrus said...

Zawi, thanks for the visit and the good words on my kind of photography. Well, I am still learning the trick of getting a good shot.

As for that special treats you are most welcome anytime whenever you are in KL.

Have a nice day.

Salam Pak Idrus,

Oooh...turkey! I do so lover turkey! Never that the taste is actually bland, but its one of the healthiest food around.

Oh, btw, I also do lover Turkish, especially those with long, flowing hair :)

Pak Idrus said...

cakapaje, Shah thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on Turkey.
Turkey the bird is a really good food for a change. But I am not sure of the other Turkey especially that of the long flowing hair.

Anyhow I love bird of whatever species that pop up in our minds. At this age I think I can honestly say that varieties is indeed the spice of life. It does add color to one life.

Have a nice day and take care.

Pak Idrus,

Unfortunately, I didnt manage to celebrate on that day. left work quite late. It is tiring time for most of us ie restructuring. even for the ones who are still around, the atmosphere is solemn.

I shall try roast turkey for Christmas. Yours looks really delicious.

have a nice day Pak!

Georgia said...

Is the cheesy dish a lasagna?

Pak Idrus said...

Ms B, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the subject of this posting.

It just happen that it is Eid Adha and the family decide to prepare something different, thus the Turkey.

Well we do have to take time off for ourselves and anytime would be OK I guessed. Get your little kids to be involved in the preparation and it would surely be fun.

Have a nice day.

Pak Idrus said...

Georgia, thanks for the visit. Yes, it is indeed lasagna. Everyone favorites western food.

Have a nice day.
